What lens are you planning to buy with the tax returns?

That's right, what lens are you planning to buy with or with the help of your tax returns?

I'm planning on using it to pay for the glass I bought in 2009!

With my work bonus, though... well, who's to say how that's allocated?

I would love to buy a DA*300, but am more likely to pay for last year's LBA activites.

I'm probably going to buy me a genuine D LI90 battery and another flash, probably a Metz 58 or 540FGZ this time, for that I will need another swivel bracket and receiver.

I'm thinking about the DA 15 or a telezoom (50-135 or 70-200).

I'll be spending mine paying off last year's LBA and CBA purchases, like many others here apparently. However, I almost bid on an auction for an MX body with a K 50mm f1.2 and M 35mm f2 which just ended. It ended with no bids and would have been worth the price. Alas, I must be more thrifty in the coming year.

Re: What lens are you planning to buy with the tax returns?

I'm tempted by a sigma 10-20, tamron17-50 or maybe the da15 limited. Widest I have other than the kit lens is the 21ltd. In reality, it is more likely to be going toward on of my kids education though.

I am trying to decide between the Bigma and the Sigma 100-300 and then waiting a month or two and picking up a igma 1.7 tc.
Having a darn hard time deciding though
